I love recycling and reusing everyday items in our crafts. This Egg Carton Bat craft does just that. It reuses part of a paper carton and results in a fun, unique decoration for Halloween.

Egg Carton Bat Craft for Kids

My son had fun making this bat several years ago. I’m surprised I didn’t write a tutorial then! Thankfully, this cute bat craft is still fun and relevant making it a perfect share this month. Ready to create your own Egg Carton Bat or help your kids with one? Here’s how …


  • Paper egg carton
  • Black acrylic paint
  • White paper
  • Glue or glue dots
  • Googly eyes
  • Yarn


Step 1 Cut out a section of the egg carton that is 1×3 to create the body and wings of the bat.

Step 2 Paint the egg carton with black acrylic paint. You can cover all of the exposed carton or leave a few spots untouched like we did. Once you are done painting, set the carton aside to dry.

Step 3 Cut 2 small triangles from white paper. These will be the bat’s fangs.

Step 4 Attach googly eyes and the fangs to the egg carton using glue or glue dots.

Step 5 Carefully punch a small hole in the top center using scissors. Cut about 12″ length of yarn. Thread both ends through the hole in the egg carton and tie a knot underneath.
